“It is rare that a religion and cultural phenomenon melds music, culture, philosophy and social change and also spreads around the far reaches of the globe. The Rastafarian Movement has accomplished this. It is one of the most vibrant and culturally significant Black movements to have emerged in recent times. Rastafarians introduced a new language, fashion and lifestyle into mainstream cultures and promoted passionate, often fiery, perspectives on identity and race.”
